Tonight was the big night for my quilt at the school fundraiser. It was pulled from the silent auction and was set to go in the live one, with a real auctioneer calling out in that impossible to understand style.
I was so nervous, I had to get up and walk around. It felt like something out of a Little House on the Prairie re-run with Ma Ingalls selling a pie at the bake sale against Mrs. Olsen's fancy pants cake. Was Pa going to have to step in and try to outbid the others - ending up with the homemade item no one wanted? Let's just say I was glad it was a Burgers and BREW event, because I got to have a little wine to calm my nerves. The other items were front row King's tickets, golf weekends, wine tastings for twelve and a week's stay in Mexico. My little quilt did alright for itself and got the same price as my quilts do on Etsy. The Big E was happy that we're going to bed knowing Little Vest Girl has a home, and ours is not it!
